A unique forest house by Envelope Architecture + Design in Northern California.

The skilled team of Berkley-based Envelope Architecture + Design was asked to create a family retreat nestled in the forested hills of Northern California. The house consists of a series of tent-like cabins – three sleeping quarters and a living-dining space. The different spaces are linked by wood paths. The roofs and walls create a playful connection with the natural environment. As usual, below you can see a few images of the project.
